Geocache Description:

Teritorija parasti ir atverta; ja tomer varti no Jaunciema gatves ir ciet, pa celu jaiet uz Bukultu kanala pusi nedaudz paejot pa sanu celinu jaatrod dikis. No dika ejot (tiesa pa krumiem un citu vegetaciju) var noklut lidz slepnim neforsejot nekadus žogus. Ar automašinam teritorija nebrauciet un esiet diskreti. Un nekada gadijuma nevelkam izejamas drebes!


Vieta, kur atrodas slepnis 13. gadsimta beigas tika uzcelta stipra Livonijas ordena pils, kurai bija liela strategiska nozime, jo ta atradas pie šauruma starp Juglas ezeru un Kišezeru. Pie pils atradušas dzirnavas, iespejams ari, ka sakotneji pati pils ir bijusi nocietinatas udensdzirnavas. 17. gadsimta rakstos minets, ka pils ir nopostita, bet lidzas atrodas ciemats ar vairakiem krogiem. Musdienas gan preciza pils atrašanas vieta nav zinama, jo pils drupas 18.gs. sakuma tika uzspridzinatas un akmeni izmantoti Daugavgrivas cietokšna buvei. 20. gadsimta teritorija ir izmantota Padomju armijas vajadzibam, tagad dažadi uznemumi un iestades.

[ENG] The gate to the territory is usually open; if not – take the dust road down to Bukulti canal, turn left and find a pond. Make a shortcut through the shrubs and find yourself near the cache without crossing any fence. Please do not drive cars inside the territory and be discreet. Be prepared for getting your clothes dirty.
A robust castle was built in the site of cache by Livonian Order in the end of 13th century. It had a great strategic importance as the location allowed to control the road to Riga passing between Juglas and Kišu lakes. A watermill was located right next to the castle and it is possible that in the early days the mill was fortified itself. Documents from 17th century tell that the castle has been ruined but a settlement with several pubs still existed. Nowadays the precise location of castle is unknown because the ruins were blown up and the stones used for construction of Daugavgriva fortress in early 18th century. In 20th century the territory was used by Soviet army, now by a number of different enterprises.
